Hi,

 

Do people use this Altrider luggage rack? I find it nice and very discreet, and I like the fact that it is fixed from the bottom for good support

 

Thank's all

@Black_T7  I don't have any pics at the moment.  It's pretty stock except for AXP skid plate and Cycra Ultra Pro Bend handguards.  I do have a Givi 47L top case from my last bike but I'm not planning to run that on this bike at this time.

 

Am just about to disassemble to do a mass install:

front blinkers, anti-bobblehead, rear blinkers & tail tidy, Rally Raid luggage racks, SW-Motec centerstand, possible some other bits that I've forgotten as I've been ordering things for a couple months.  🙂

Okay thanks ! I hesitate for the rack, i would like the AS but in EU it's not possible to order now (BREXIT), and they don't know when it's possible...!

And this rack is really nice too, but more expensive and it doesn't have passenger handles.

hi ,

looks great

rhe rack mounted to the bike just in the rear tail sub frame. does that limit the wheigt load on the rack?  

 other solutions use the bolts near the seat to mount the rack

  thank you

I had bad luck with my Altrider rack on my S10 - the counter sunk holes in the aluminum are a weakness. literally have my Givi trekker box on the rear rack, with just my raincoat on it, bke on a trailer, the aluminum supports for the rear rack cracked around the countersinking, and it was all ruined. Was less than a year after adding it to the bike. Response from them was "that not how its intended to be used, oh well" 

 

That being said, the design is ok, curious how it would hold up long term. all of the force if being transferred down to those bolt holes, which are M6 I think.  Also, since it has wings to go around the side of the bike, weight is going to be deforming it slightly (Think like a scissor jack) every bump. I could see it failing at the seams where the aluminum is bent. 

 

But who knows? Folks generally like their kit, I in fact got their headlight protector for the T7 since it seemed the best one at a reasonable price.
